Risk Mitigation

Mitigating Risk

Reducing or eliminating security risk requires a deep understanding of a broad range of factors that can influence it. Organisations that manage risk well are likely to thrive and prosper. Those that are unaware of risk factors or have failed to put in place the necessary governance and mitigation will face challenges, some of which may become existential.

CornerStone’s Unified Security Risk Management® methodology will help to define each client's security risk maturity status and, based on the unique circumstances identified, mitigation measures will be created that address the risks identified. Through our expertise and experience, the identification of security risk and the quantification and calculation of how impactful it might become, CornerStone is able to proactively reduce risk levels and improve overall business resilience.

How we help

CornerStone’s holistic approach to security and risk management ensures that our solutions are wide-ranging and our services aligned to support our clients throughout their security improvement and risk reduction journey.

Award Winning Security, Cyber and Risk Consulting

What we do?

Our Approach

Mitigation measures are the mechanisms through which risk can be reduced or eradicated. Seldom can mitigation be achieved by tackling a single issue alone. Todays business processes and systems are complex, interlinked and in many ways, interdependent. It requires a broad and deep understanding of the factors that can affect security risk to be able to successfully reduce risk levels. Once the context has been established, CornerStone’s services have been developed to support clients through the security and risk life-cycle. Within each service category we apply the same high standards and offer the same joined-up understanding that underpins every service that we deliver.   

Risk Assessment

Our Risk Assessment process considers the Threat environment and analyses the vulnerabilities that might exist before going on to calculate risk ratings that can be monitored over time

Operational Requirements

By producing a clearly communicated Operational Requirement (OR) it can act as the framework that guides the counter-measures that can be implemented in response to any identified security risks

We save our clients money

Our clients choose to use an Independent Security Consultant for a number of reasons. It might be to perform a specialist task that they don’t have the in-house expertise or resources to deliver. It might be because they need the assurance of engaging a respected subject matter expert but what our clients all appreciate is our ability to save them money and deliver value wherever we can.

Independent Security Consultants

We are completely independent of any product manufacturer, system installer or other type of Security Company. We do not supply equipment, install products or provide commissioning services. Our solutions are based on your operational requirements - there’s no other agenda influencing our design or advice.

We reduce our client’s security risk profile

Before change can be implemented it is essential that the current position is understood and quantified. Improving our clients risk profile starts with a comprehensive analysis of their current situation. Only once we know what security threats they might be exposed to and what vulnerabilities exist can we define a risk rating and devise a plan of how to mitigate and where possible, eliminate security risks.
